Fascinated by the historical and social contexts that surround the Bible’s textualization, centered research on fields that help approach a more native understanding of the biblical world: Northwest Semitics, Archaeology, Historical Geography, Assyriology, Second Temple Judaism. Presently working on first book, Portrayals of Exchange in the Book of Kings, which examines the social structures that undergird the economy of ancient Israel.

In my classes, you can expect an emphasis on historical contexts of the Bible with the understanding that such informed positions can sharpen our exegesis and ultimately lead us to a richer theology. Pedagogically, I like to structure my courses with a wide variety of methods: lectures with multimedia, collaborative exercises and small-groups. I also believe that quality theological education necessitates a greater learning community. Along with my colleagues, I am committed to support such community, centered on developing your ministerial potential.
